Danieliís Career-High 24 Points Leads Anchorwomen Past RWU, 79-56 RIC Improves to 4-1 in 23-Point Victory

     Providence, RIóJunior forward Josalee Danieli (New Gloucester, ME) torched Roger Williams for a career-high 24 points as Rhode Island College improved to 4-1 in a battle of intra-state rivals.

 

Danieli did it all for the Anchorwomen, shooting 11-for-13 from the field. She added seven boards, two assists and two steals. Sophomore guard Tyla Martin (Cumberland, RI) logged 14 points, while senior forward Kari Geisler (Deerfield, NH) totaled 12 points and 10 rebounds for her third double-double of the season.

 

Freshman guard Karen Ewanowsky (Middletown, CT) tried her best to keep the Hawks in the game, scoring 12 of her 15 points, all of which came on three-pointers, in the first half. Roger Williams cut RICís lead to two points several times in the first stanza, but the Anchorwomen held off the circling Hawks and went into the break with a 37-31 lead.

 

Danieli was the key factor in the second half, shooting a perfect 6-for-6 from the field as RIC cruised to its largest margin of victory so far this season. RIC held Roger Williamsí leading scorer, junior guard Caitlyn Leone (Irvington, NY), who was averaging 15.0 ppg coming into the game, to just two points.

 

Roger Williams, which was playing its first game in 11 days, remains winless at 0-3. RICís 79 points was its second-highest offensive output of the season.

 

In upcoming action, RIC opens the Little East Conference circuit at home against Keene State on Saturday, Dec. 2 at 1 p.m.
